Peter Federico improves but his future at Valencia CF is doubtful

-

Peter Federico He had been accumulating minutes game after game with Valencia CF to continue gaining momentum and getting into the team’s dynamics. After 266 minutes played and one start, against RCD Mallorca, Baraja decided to line him up as the starting right winger after the last minute loss of Fran Pérez. It was the second novelty in the eleven along with Yarek Gasiorowski. The Spaniard of Dominican origin had before him a chance unbeatable in Montjuïc, because this time he would have enough minutes to demonstrate why Valencia CF should sign him at the end of his loan. His first big action came in the 13th minute of the game. He took advantage of his speed to get away from Cancelo, who was imprecise in his marking, along the wing. Despite stumbling at the time of center, he did manage to get the ball to Hugo Duro. The shot was about to completely surprise Ter Stegen. It would have been his first assist with the Valencia CF jersey. His improvement, however, seems to come against the clock and his future must be decided at the end of the season. From what he does in the next five games we will know if Valencia bets on him after the transfer and exercises the purchase option of two million euros for 50% of his rights.

To make matters worse, seven minutes later he could not materialize a clear and obvious scoring opportunity. After an extraordinary long ball from Mamardashvili, Peter Federico beat Pau Cubarsí and ran to be alone against Ter Stegen. The shot with his right foot, the less good leg, was defective and went far from the post. In the next play, FC Barcelona would take the lead.

A penalty caused and another that the referee did not whistle

Around the 35th minute of the match, Peter Federico was very ready to beat the back of Ronald Araújo. It wasn’t the first time, but this time he did manage to get gold from the play. The Uruguayan centre-back attacked the Valencia CF winger from behind, and with great force, who fell to the ground in pain. The arbitration decision was clear from the first moment: penalty. Pepelu managed to convert the penalty and momentarily tie the contest. It would not be the last play in which he seriously committed the Blaugrana defense.

Just after the restart after the break, Peter Federico prepared to control a ball inside the FC Barcelona area. In that precise moment, Íñigo Martínez swept him away with his left leg. The match referee, De Burgos Bengoetxea, decided not to whistle, a decision that was confirmed by the VAR. The replays once again demonstrated the existence of a contact by Íñigo that knocked the Valencian player to the ground. Within the referee’s scale, it was up to debate whether or not it was enough to be considered a penalty.

80 minutes for a Peter Federico who had a lot of prominence

His second game as a starter came to an end in the minute 80 when Baraja decided replace him by Cenk Özkacar. With an additional defender, El Pipo sought to maintain the 2-2 that allowed Montjuïc to scratch a point. The play would not end up going well. Personally for Peter Federico, although he could have been more accurate in front of goal, he did manage to create a lot of danger by causing penalties and giving key passes for his teammates, especially Hugo Duro and Diego López.
